I applied for a promotion at work at the end of August. I want to be a supervisor.  Interviews were done the last week of September. I felt great after the interview. It was my best interview yet. I nailed the interview. Unfortunately, I got the bad news this past Thursday, I didn’t get the…

Man’s Laws cannot produce Righteousness

Recently, we have been barraged with a stream of news highlighting terrible and horrific acts of gun violence. Although in each story we find heroic examples of courage, sacrifice, and compassion it does little to dull the pain and suffering felt by so many victims, families, and community members. Compounding the issue and politicizing the…

There is a lot that separates humans from animals. Some obvious answers lie in simple biology. A lack of feathers and scales differentiates us from reptiles and birds.

At the conference thing I attended in Seattle a little over a week ago, I went to workshop on incorporating faith groups into prisoner re-entry. One of the speakers, Chris Hoke, told a story about a gang-leader he met, José Israel Garcia, known as “Neaners". By the age of 30 he had spent more than…

Thanks for a special VBS

I was in Seattle the past week and I missed VBS. Despite that, I heard a lot of great things about the week. I know about a lot of the prep work that went into making it possible—the planning, studying, and ordering of supplies. There were people who prayed continually about visitors, and making an…

Published on Comments(0)
The book of Ezekiel is fascinating—and contains an incredibly powerful message. The book begins with five chapters (1-5) of God preparing Ezekiel to deliver His message.
